Clif Bar Recalls Peanut Butter Products

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Clif Bar & Co. expanded its voluntary and precautionary recall of Clif and Luna bars because of concerns that the recalled bars contain peanut products that were manufactured by Peanut Corp. of America , the focus of the ongoing salmonella investigation.

Clif Bar took this action in response to PCA’s recent expansion of its peanut product recall to include all peanut products produced in PCA’s Blakely, Ga., plant since Jan. 1, 2007.

The following Clif Bar & Co. products, with the following “Best By/Sell By” dates, all sizes and packages, are included in the initial and expanded voluntary recall:

-- Clif Bar Crunchy Peanut Butter, 09OCT08 to 31DEC09;
-- Clif Bar Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch, 09OCT08 to 31DEC09;
-- Clif Bar Peanut Toffee Buzz, 09OCT08 to 31DEC09;
-- Clif Builder’s Peanut Butter, 20SEP08 to 1DEC09;
-- Clif Kid Organic ZbaR Peanut Butter, 21OCT08 to 31DEC09;
-- Luna Nutz Over Chocolate, 28OCT08 to 31DEC09;
-- Luna Peanut Butter Cookie, 28OCT08 to 31DEC09; and,
-- all Mojo and Mojo Dipped Bars, 01SEP07 to 31OCT09.

The recalled products were sold in all types of retail stores throughout the United States. No other Clif or Luna products or flavors were included in this recall. As of press time, none of the recalled products had tested positive for salmonella.

Meanwhile, Lance reached out a third time to the public, stressing that 100 percent of the peanut butter used in Lance brand sandwich crackers is made by Lance. President and CEO Singer reached out via YouTube with a video message, which he encouraged consumers to share with friends and family.

"Our company is committed to maintaining stringent quality and safety standards for our products, which includes extensive microbial testing of the peanut butter used in Lance sandwich crackers," he said in statement.
